So here is the top reason how the Flyers can avoid a second-half swoon and shortcomings in the postseason:
While Sergei Bobrovsky should be able to develop into a better goaltender soon, the rest of the Flyers roster is built to win now with its outstanding skill and depth.
There is no reason why they should not make a serious run at one of the marquee free-agent goaltenders, Ilya Bryzgalov or Tomas Vokoun.
While some amount of Philadelphia's depth may have to be compromised, it would be worth it to add a lasting, stud goaltender that this franchise has been looking for since Ron Hextall left.
Bryzgalov should be regarded as the better choice, given that he had better statistics across the board other than save percentage and has some (average) playoff experience.
Vokoun may actually be harder for the Flyers to bring in than Bryzgalov from a financial standpoint. Florida has an unprecedented $41 million in cap space this summer and Vokoun is going to be their top priority in free agency.
Unless Vokoun really wants to get out of Florida (which would be understandable, but to the tune of turning down a possible $7 million or more per year?), the Panthers will surely be able to afford him.
Bryzgalov, on the other hand, is sure to be expensive but the uncertain ownership and location of the Coyotes has a real shot of convincing him to go somewhere else.
The Flyers need to look to completely solidify their roster to play well all year long and in the playoffs, and the only necessary place for improvement on this team right now is in net. Do that and they have a shot at bringing home some hardware.
